He was Mr. Straight A’s
In the typical high school way
That everyone dreams about.
Quiet boy that intrigued me,
Quiet boy that lost me.
Quentin was the one boy that was too scared to stare directly at the sun
In fear of the things that adults tell children
Not to do. Never once did he take a risk and
Never once did he try to reach me
Until it was too late.
He was the one boy whose face I’ll never forget.
The growth of love for adventure was merely his
Side effect of falling in love with me.
Quentin was the one thing that kept me tied to reality,
And even today, I’m not so sure-
Was I happy to see him go?
